In Austin, current women’s basketball standout forward Charli Collier helped address food shortages and hunger across the city by teaming with Roppolo’s Pizzeria to provide personal pizzas for those in need.

Earlier in the day, former Texas safety Michael Huff, who has been on staff as a quality control assistant since 2016, bought 1,000 tacos from longtime East Austin taco joint Juan in a Million on Thursday morning.
If you’re in Austin and need a hot meal and can safely make it to @DonJuanTaco I’ve paid for 1,000 tacos in advance. Let’s feed as many people as we can and only take what you need. 2300 E Cesar Chavez st Austin, TX 78702.— Michael Huff (@Huffy247) February 18, 2021
But Huff wasn’t done, helping arrange more meals in his hometown of Irving.
If you’re in the IRVING / DALLAS area and are in need of a WARM MEAL... @QuezHaynes00 and I have arranged for 200 free meals to be given to those that need it. Information in the thread.— Michael Huff (@Huffy247) February 18, 2021
The two combined with Chik-Fil-A and Cheddars to provide those 200 meals.
In Houston, former Texas defensive end Charles Omenihu, now contributing with the Houston Texans, donated money to feed struggling families.
